Long-lost twins lived 3 miles apart

Jennifer and Judith Walton, were reunited by the producers of ITV1 series "Long Lost Family" for an episode scheduled for air April 21, said they still live in the Rotherham, England, homes they grew up in and never knew they shared the same doctor and dentist, The Sun reported Tuesday.

The twins said they also found Jen worked for 40 years at the store where Judith, who was renamed Kath by her adoptive family, picked up her prescriptions. They have grandchildren in the same local drama group.

The sisters had been adopted by different families at birth. Jen said she had attempted to track her sister through social services 14 years ago, but had no success. She said it took researchers for the TV show four months to discover her sister living in the same town.

"I dreamed of one day finding my sister and, because I couldn't find her, imagined she was in Australia," Jen said. "When I found she was 'round the corner, I felt so happy.

"Now we see each other every week and pop round to each other's home for cups of tea."
